It seems traitorous to begin a thread on a rival mineral makeup brand, but here goes. I react quite badly to bismuth- my skin becomes incredibly tight and itchy. Jane Iredale is one of the brands that doesn't use the ingredient. They do 2 types- amazing base which is a loose powder and a purepressed which is in a compact. The purepressed is supposed to give a more matte finish. Anyone used this brand? Some feedback would be great.
